What just happened !! left me in shock ..
29 January 2016 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

From now and on I want all TVD episodes to come to be like this one .. It really felt so much fun to watch each and every scene , Damon's Hell was Sad, Dark and Hilarious then really sad again, in the same time over and over again hitting "the edge of tomorrow" style 😆😆 before it really leave us stunned at the last scene !!!.

It seems like after Christmas break the writers had a clear head to do such an idea with a really well written script, but again as i said this season is by far much better than the last two seasons where the plot was shattered, and again of course "no disrespect to the character of Elena", she not being in the show made it look tighter and removed all the sluggishness and the unfollowable intersections and brought back the unpredictability.

Overall ,, the show is peaking by the next couple of episodes so i'm really now expecting so much tense, thrill and many more jaw dropping surprises to come ;)
